Sohoton Cove, Siargao, Surigao Del Norte

As planning for our road trip becomes more detailed, we also need more information about specific places, points of interests, accommodations, etc.

Since there is limited number of ferry trips between Lipata, Surigao City in Mindanao and Liloan, Southern Leyte in Visayas, timing is critical. I have yet to verify my most recent information that there are only three trips to Liloan, i.e. leaving Lipata at 3AM, 7AM and 12noon. Initially, the ferry schedule I got had four trips in a day, including one in the afternoon. So I need to verify this until before we leave as I imagine schedules can easily change for many reasons...reasons that actually would not matter anymore if you didn't know and your travel plans got screwed up for depending on it.

Anyway, while trying to getting info about the ferry schedule and Surigao in general, I stumbled upon good write ups about Siargao Island. I found out that Siargao is not only for surfer dudes and dudettes, there are also hidden treasures for nature lovers like me. And that treasure is Sohoton Cove of Bucas Grande, described by this blog as "an emerald maze of inlets and verdant forests" accessible only during low tide.

I got even more excited about non-stinging jellyfish that congregate in Sohoton Cove from January to September.  So I guess we're in luck.  The kids would surely love it as one can actually touch and play with these jellyfish.  Great, isn't it?

Now, if only we can insert another day to the original schedule...hmmm well see...
